Match 35 IPL 2013 – Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab
Date – Fri Apr 26
Time – 8:00 pm i.e 14:30 GMT | 20:00 IST
Venue – Eden Gardens, Kolkata
Today in the 35th match of Pepsi IPL Season 6, Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Kings XI Punjab at the Eden Gardens. KKR who have won just 2 matches out of 7 played so far are feeling the heat as they are the defending champions and need to pull up the socks if they wish to play in the second round of the league.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab have won 4 out of 7 matches and will be looking for a good win today to move up the points table. The main worry for KXIP is the form of captain Gilchrist but the good news is the form of Mandeep Singh and Miller. Once Gilly returns to his form, it will be next to impossible for opponents to stop KXIP.
KKR are relying on heavily on captain Gautam Gambhir and if he fails, KKR is in all sorts of troubles as middle order is not responding well. The injury scare to Kallis and Manoj Tiwary has added to the KKR woes.
